‘Profit-making govt. institutions will not be sold’

‘Profit-making govt. institutions will not be sold’

President Maithripala Sirisena said, none of the profit-making government institutions will be sold to the private and there is no need for the port to be privatized.

The President stated this attending the opening ceremony of the Sri Lankan Ports Authority’s CFS 1 Container Freight Station as the chief guest.

At the ceremony, the new website of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority was also launched by President Sirisena. Similarly the operations of the Container Freight Station were also opened by the President himself. Addressing the Ports Authority employees, the President noted that it’s everyone’s responsibility to support the Minister to protect the port which is the heart of the nation.

“When we are working we should pay special attention upon our responsibilities.

The chairman of the Port Authority, Secretary to the Ministry, Directors and the Administrative officers and Trade Unions should carry out their duties on a friendly, understanding and in a responsible manner."

The Container Freight Station which was opened by the President was completed with the use of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority’s technology and manpower. Because of this reason, the Container Freight Station spent Rs.95 million for the construction materials only.

The employees who built the 5,400 square meters Container Freight Station got the opportunity in taking a group photograph with the President as well.
